With heavy hearts, we remember and honor the life of Rosalynn Carter, a remarkable caregiving advocate and former First Lady. She dedicated her life to making a positive difference in the lives of countless individuals and families.

Rosalynn Carter's unwavering commitment to caregiving advocacy inspired a wave of kindness and understanding. As First Lady, she championed causes close to her heart, shedding light on the challenges faced by caregivers and their profound impact on society.

Beyond her advocacy work, Rosalynn Carter was a loving wife, mother, and friend. Her radiant smile, warmth, and genuine care left a lasting impression on our hearts.

As we mourn the loss of this caregiving champion, let us celebrate her immense contributions, including the work of the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregivers . We honor Rosalynn Carter's memory by continuing her mission to support and uplift caregivers everywhere, advocating for their rights and well-being.

She partnered with her husband on policy and diplomacy during his presidency.
